“Back to Our Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

After a two year hiatus we returned to Cowslip's Belle, our favorite Ashland B&B. We found Jon and Carmen as welcoming and gracious as always. This time we stayed in the rear extension, which provided additional privacy. They are expanding their Vacation Rental options, beyond the traditional B&B. But the breakfasts remain fabulous, with a different principal Item each day (Pecan Waffles, Fluffy Omelets) and fresh fruit and fresh orange juice and marvelous coffee!

With its great location less than 1/2 mile from the Shakespeare Festival and the clean, warm, comfortable atmosphere, this is a place that would be very hard to beat!

The Cowslip's Belle is 0.3 miles from the Shakespeare theaters. We walked to plays, a variety of restaurants, and shopping. Jon and Carmen have a lovely disposition and a lovely inn. The rooms were immaculate and decorated with interesting antiques. I appreciated the eye to conservation with recycling, etc. We stayed in the Carriage House, which allowed us to keep to ourselves for the most part. However, if you so choose, there is a cozy parlor with books and good conversation. The full breakfast far exceeding my expectations.

Room Tip: The carriage house is separate from the main house if you'd like a bit more privacy.

What's not to like about this lovely B&B in Ashland. We were made so welcome despite arriving much earlier than the advertised check-in. Our room was warm and comfortable, and the fabulous bed ensured a great night's sleep. Jon and Carmen are lovely helpful hosts, without being intrusive. We really enjoyed our scrumptious breakfast and chatting with Jon and Carmen and the other guests. We stayed only one night as we were on a tight schedule to get to Seattle but will definitely return and stay for longer on a future trip the the US. And the gardens with Koi ponds are just beautiful - so relaxing. Easy walking distance to the theatres, shops and great restaurants.

Returning to Cowslip's each June, is like going home only better. Home sometimes holds old memories, some not pleasant or have strings attached. Not so with Cowslip's. I look forward to renewing my friendship with Jon & Carmen and guests that I may know from past years. The warmth and TLC that Jon and Carmen extend to all guests, is extraordinary, and add to that the wonderful design and comfort of the rooms and fantastic breakfasts. What more is there to desire. Get ready, Carmen & Jon. as "the group" is descending on you soon.

Room Tip: They are all great. Depends on the number in your party.

Jon and Carmen are so easy to work with. Very cordial and welcoming. We really loved the
proximity of their B&B to the Shakespearian Theatre, a short and pleasant walking distance for us. The Gillyvor Room we stayed in was clean, warm and comfortable. The late night coffee and hot water was always available. The breakfast was outstanding. We have had other people from our area stop at the Cowslip, and their response has been, 'great place' "very special".
When we come to Ashland, Oregon to attend the theatre and stay overnight, we reserve a room at the Cowslip Bed and Breakfast first.

We have enjoyed the B & B here before, but this time opted for a longer stay at the vacation rental. What a treat! Our handsome upstairs rooms were very spacious and offered privacy. The sheltered porch offered views of the hills. The kitchen, with a small fridge and full stove, enabled us to enjoy healthy meals on our own schedule, though we did enjoy a number of great local restaurants. The inn is within an eight-minute walk of the theaters, and the innkeepers (Carmen and Jon) are great. We look forward to our next visit.

Jon and Carmen are the best hosts we have ever encountered in a B&B! They are informative and gracious and maintain a beautiful welcoming establishment. The rooms contain everything a person could need including individual coffee makers and cookies! It is set back from the street and very quiet, but an easy walk to the theaters. We plan to return many times.
